Last week Director Lori LeBlanc spoke to a group of high school girls in this region at the
SCIA Work it! Louisiana Females Fueling Our Workforce
, discussing her business role in the oil and gas industry.
Lori was invited to speak by the event's host Fletcher Technical Community College, held at the BP Houma Operations Learning Center in Schriever where over 1,000 girls participated.
The purpose of
Females Fueling Our Workforce
is to "empower young ladies to overcome barriers in their life, inform them about the great career opportunities there are in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics), and to change the perception that STEM related careers are only for males."
